About this app

Get rid of the unsolicited calls once forever. Safely and absolutely free.

Telemarketers, phone scams or „just“ unsolicited surveys? The Should I Answer app can get you rid of all such calls.

How does the app work?

Whenever some unknown number calls the app checks it in its permanently updated database - immediately, without internet connection. If it finds out that other users reported the respective number as nuisance, it warns you against it. Or if you want it so, it can block it directly, the caller will not be able to reach you.

It is just the database used by the Should I Answer app which is an absolute unique part. It is composed directly by the users of the app: after each unknown call the users can rate it anonymously either as safe or spam. After approval given by our admins the report is then visible in the database where all users can benefit from.

What the app can do?

• It can protect you effectively against the unsolicited calls. You can set the level of protection exactly according to your needs: from simple alert of unsolicited call to direct blocking.

• It can block even hidden, foreign or premium rate numbers. Also you can write your own lists of blocked or allowed numbers.

• The app can be used as fully functional dialer app: you will find all your Contacts, favourite Contacts and complete call history in it.

• The app can protect you even offline. If you need to update the local database it waits for your wi-fi connection.

• It’s simple, even your grandma can use it :-)

How does the app deal with your personal data?

Everything is happening directly in your phone, and in your phone only - your data is never by passed to some 3rd party. The app can’t „see“ even your own phone number, all reports are fully anonymous, the app doesn’t send even your Contacts anywhere.

I've used this app for years. Now I'm constantly getting the database out of date notifications. It used to take you directly to the manual update screen but now it just takes you to the call log. Did some reading and you have to go to About, click on the database version and it will take you to the manual update. Hiding the option and constantly nagging, bad combination. Change back to one time payment.

have been using this for many years and have mostly had good experiences, but the database issue is becoming too much. it keeps giving prompts to update the database when there's no update available, and I'm not interested in a monthly subscription to auto update (no annual or one time payment option.) may need to seek a different app.

If there was an option to do a one-time purchase instead of a monthly subscription to SIA Plus or donation, that would be great. A one-time purchase is better, in my opinion, than a subscription since everything is subscription based these days, and because it is annoying having a monthly charge for stuff anyways, since subscriptions are a wallet drainer. Also, I don't use the database feature anyways, I use the app to block calls that are not in my contacts.
